Taping a trimmer bearing

IIRC it was 9fingers who mentioned this.

Any suggestions as to type of tape as the bearing surface is quite small.

At the joint, do you cut at 90 degrees or on a 'mitre' ? Can you double tape ?

If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.

I think I've seen it done with masking tape and join butted.

Yes this is my pet technique. I use any old tape that is handy. Rarely bother to reduce the width as it hangs below the cutter out of the way. The overlap is not a problem and can be as rough as a badgers 4rse.
Remember that you are doing the rough cut with the tape on and the oh so fine finish cut with it taken off.
